Shelter can protect passengers from the rain

Beaufort Bridge: Bus shelter needed

THERE is a need for a bus shelter to be provided at Beaufort Bridge as a matter of priority, Kerry County Council has been told.

Cllr Michael Cahill said the bust stop in the area is very popular as it is on the Ring of Kerry road and links the towns of Killarney and Killorglin.

“It services a large region, including Beaufort and Listry parishes and also popular tourist attractions such as the Gap of Dunloe, Kate Kearney’s and the Black Valley,” he said.

He said the provision of a bus shelter – where people can shield themselves from the rain – was considered very important for the benefit of locals and tourists.

“It is especially relevant when you take Irish weather conditions into consideration,” he said.

Kerry County Council officials said they would write to Bus Éireann on the matter.
